Yasser Zaghlool, the CEO of the National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC), said this week that hiring UAE nationals is one of its ultimate priorities in all company sectors, especially in the engineering and technical fields, according to the Emirates News Agency.
“We ultimately aim to hire committed and loyal UAE nationals who will settle down in our company for long time,” said Mr. Zaghlool.
“Marine dredging is a difficult field due to its complicated technicalities and circumstances, that’s why we want to give them the opportunity to lead this field and develop their career and expertise.”
The announcement came during NMDC’s participation in Tawdheef, the recruitment event for the UAE nationals currently taking place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center, ADNEC.
“We are targeting hiring the maximum number of UAE candidates during Tawdheef, Abu Dhabi. Due to the rare experience we require in our industry, we invest a lot in human resources to train our employees to become familiar with our work. This investment will be dedicated to qualifying UAE nationals to build the local capacity in this country in the long run,” added Zaghlool.
The Tawdheef recruitment event, taking place from February 1-3, is a platform for both public and private companies to meet qualified Emirati professionals and fresh graduates for their recruitment needs and Emiratisation program.
